If you find yourself in Forrest City, Arkansas looking for a quick fix of waffles and hash browns, might you consider the illustrious house of waffles, known to all that feast on cheese and eggs as Waffle House? Definitely not going to be any hair in those hash browns, because they just passed a health department inspection! Although, you might want to know, a certain incident caused that health inspection—onlookers caught two employees using a pot of water in the restaurant's kitchen to do their hair.

Antonio Robinson told a local news outlet that his friend began to cough. "I looked up at him. He went to pulling out strings of hair out of his mouth."
The pair then went to the kitchen with their cell phones. "She dipped her hair in the pot and when it came back up she was drying it off with one of the towels," said Robinson. "I see people do that in their houses and things like that but for a restaurant, I don't know."
Waffle House apparently does know, however. The two employees lost their jobs, and a spokesman issued the following statement:
We were made aware of this via a Facebook Private message this morning. We immediately reached out to the local management team. After identifying the parties involved, they were immediately terminated. The health department has been out to the restaurant for an inspection which it passed, and they have closed the case.
We do not tolerate these behaviors and strive to provide a clean, safe environment for all our customers.
So there you go. Waffle House is officially as hairless as Donald Trump under that combover.
